I'm from Mississippi and I just moved to Houston to spread my fan base. What advice would you give to an up and coming artist that is trying to make a footprint in the music industry??
since you're new, networking is important. you need to be around the best that's doing it in the city, from the promoters, the dj's, the studios (imixhouston.com), the radio station people on down to the photographers, graphics and producers/songwriters. of course making music is key too, but if you have great music and no one knows about it, what good is it going to do? so network, be able to take criticism from those who are established in the business and perfect your craft! I wish you all the best.
